    No. "Composed of".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    We could use by in a different context:

    The Magic Flute was composed by Mozart.

    Will it sound good if I say "consisted of"?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Composed by, consisted of or comprised all work.

    But please avoid the common error of "comprised of."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
